Book Overview


If youre working with middle schoolers, you know that ministry to early teens can be a little nuts sometimes! This calling requires a unique set of skills and knowledge. In this comprehensive guide from two middle school minister veterans, youll find everything you need to understand and effectively minister to middle school students. Youll feel prepared and equipped to meet young teens where they are and lead them towards a life with Jesus.

Many people run scared from the middle school youth room. But (thankfully!) there are people out there who are actually drawn to those young teens. Although often times they’re not equipped to deal with the unique challenges that middle school ministry presents, or they’re just not sure what to do when a room full of young teens (who are ‘part child, but not quite adult’) are running around the youth room. Finally, there’s a comprehensive guide to middle school ministry, from two veterans of this unchartered territory. Mark Oestreicher and Scott Rubin help youth workers understand the importance of middle school ministry, the development process for young teens and their implications for ministry, and how to best minister to these sometimes misunderstood students. They share their experiences (as middle school pastors and parents of middle schoolers), giving youth workers he encouragement, hope, and training they need to succeed in middle school ministry.
